When people think about their dream car, they will often envision themselves in a convertible with the top down on a hot summer day. Convertibles are highly desirable vehicles because they can allow you to enjoy the fresh air as you drive, plus they are also considered to be status symbols and luxury vehicles.

It does not always have to cost a fortune to purchase a convertible and there are many fantastic models to consider in 2018. Here are a few of the best currently available:

The Audi TT is an iconic vehicle with the brilliant roadster variation giving motorists the ability to enjoy top-down driving whilst retaining the good looks of the previous model and the solid driving performance.
